Caardvark Challenge - Owl & Blossoms


Caardvark Challenge - Owl & Blossoms
Originally uploaded by pajalu (Paula)

Hi all,

Are you all enjoying the latest Caardvark challenges as much as I am?

I decided to use some of my handmade coloured backgrounds for this card. I used Vivid Olive & Spring Green re-inkers & Perfect Pearls to make the green background. I then stamped a Hero Art's BG stamp in versamark & embossed with green, to give it a lift. The Blue piece had a stamped image on it already so I just Fussy cut around it. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks Broken China & Faded Jeans & then lightly sprayed it with a combo of Vivid Corn Flower & Perfect Pearls. I have used Diamond Glaze on all the flowers as well as some pearls. I raised the owl & flower flourish up on popdots. I used my Prisma Colour Pencils on the flowers & owls.

All the images on this card are from friends ;). I used the Owl & branch from Helen & the three flowers & flourish from Lucy. So thank you both so much.

Have a wonderful night/day & thank you for visiting & for your lovely comments - TTFN
